Q:

Which of the following fraction is the largest?

A) 7/12 B) 9/16
C) 13/20 D) 32/80
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 7/12

Explanation:

Here to say which fraction is greater from the given options, the fraction with greater numerator with same denominator or smaller denominator with same numerator.

To find the greater fraction, among the given options, make the denominators same for the options by finding the LCM of all the denominators.

7/12, 9/16, 13/20, 32/80

Now, LCM of 12, 16, 20, 80 = 240.

Then,

140/240, 135/240, 156/240, 96/240

Here 

156240 > 140240 > 135240 > 96240=> 1320 > 712 > 916 > 3280

 

Hence, largest fraction = 13/20.

Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 1/8

Explanation:

125 over 1000 in Simplest Form means 1251000 in its simple fraction form.

 

Now, to get the simplest form of 125/1000, find the HCF or GCD of both numerator and denominator i.e, 125 and 1000.

 

HCF of 125, 1000 = 125

 

Then, divide both numerator and denominator by 125

i.e, 1251251000125 = 18

 

Hence, 18 is the simplest form of 125 over 1000.
